Carlisle pulled away from Altoona to stay in the Class 6A playoff hunt.
Shippensburg remained unbeaten against a game East Pennsboro squad.
Big Spring scored a big win over the previously unbeaten state Class A champions, and Boiling Springs continued to roll in its pursuit of a capital-division title.
Here are the final scores from Friday's games with links to The Sentinel's coverage.
